Hi Guys, on a London Capetown ride 3 years ago as a Brit on a Brit passport I had to get a Syrian visa in London before I left, a Sudan visa at their embassy in Cairo along with a letter from the Brit embassy there, a rip off, an Ethiopian visa at their embassy in Khartoum and a visa for Kenya at their embassy in Addis, all others at the borders. It's a great trip with pretty good roads except for north Sudan, the entry into Ethiopia and northern Kenya,
you will enjoy it. Ride safe.
